A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

This is the final filler section on block four...

And here is the completed block...

Mumblings of the day...

- THIS tutorial shows  a mini-ironing board that looks like it would be a great addition to a sewing space.  HERE's one that's even less work to create.

- HERE's a really interesting shawl pattern that would be perfect to use up some stash yarns.  And HERE's another really pretty one!

- Baby shoes should ALL be THIS cute!!

- There's a great post HERE about how to set your sewing machine up for thread drawing.

Today the quote is from George Carlin..."Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body"


  1. What a lovely block! I really struggle using buttons and love the way you made a bouquet with some. The rose is another favorite, but the entire block is just lovely. The quote is spot on, too!

  2. Mary Anne your block is beautiful. I am amazed at how quickly you are completing these blocks. Great links and I would adore these tiny crocheted booties. The Great and Clever and Wise George Carlin...I miss him.

  3. Another stunning block Mary Anne. This quilt is going to look so pretty! Christine x

  4. Love the block, a neat way to use the tiny buttons. Thanks for the link with the tv tray. gonna make that for sure.

  5. I love your ribbon embroidery leaves. Such a pretty embellishment, and a very pretty finished block too.

  6. Gorgeous block, Mary Anne. Another finished one...getting excited now.

  7. Can't wait to see the final quilt. Lovely stitching as always.

  8. Beautiful! Love the colours - they go so well together - you must be so happy with it.

  9. You have done it again Mary Anne- created yet another really beautiful CQ embroidery.
    You have whipped through the blocks so quickly too.
    Thanks for the links. I saved the free machining one.

  10. It's beautiful! You really know how the different motifs work together and when enough is enough.
